Our Parent's Association pedal powered cinema event was a fantastic success. It took place last Sunday and everyone had a great time. Tickets sold out, they were almost oversubscribed with cyclists and the kids really enjoyed the movie as well as watching their parents and teachers cycling. Thanks to all our volunteer cyclists for their time and sponsorship and also to those who attended the event or bought wattage to support it. A huge thank you must go to Susan Nolan and all the Parents Association for the huge amount of effort they put in raise money for the school. They've also really helped us with our active flag work by undertaking this venture. Click on the picture to see pictures from the day on the PA blog.
Ms O Donoghue's and Ms Miley's classes have been taking part in some cosmic yoga lessons recently. They are really enjoying it and learning lots of yoga through fun videos. It is active, relaxing and a nice break from work. It's a great idea and some other classes might try it out too.
If you want to try some Cosmic Yoga have a look at this video and follow the instructions.
This week (9th-13th March) was national Scoot to School Week. This is important for both our Green Flag and Active Flag work. Everyone made a big effort to scoot or cycle to school during week. Ms Keogh recorded the results from each class. We definitely saw progress over the course of the week. Well done everyone and thank you to Room 9 for all their work on this. Winning class will be revealed in a few days.
Ms Cooney's class and Ms Devlin's class got active while preparing for their tests last Friday. 4th class jogged around the yard in pairs asking each other their spellings and tables and 5th class used the hall. It was a fun way to revise and keep active at the same time and we look forward to doing this lots more. Here is what the kids thought about it: ' We really loved practising our spellings this way. It is a great way of learning and being active at the same time' See photo's below.
Our GAA coach from Na Fianna, Mark Mc Manus will be back next week. Mark did a block of lessons earlier in the year in both football and camogie with 3rd and 4th and the girls thoroughly enjoyed these sessions. They are introduced to skills in both codes and are so lucky to have this opportunity to develop their skills and interest. Na Fianna, our local club in Glasnevin always support St. Brigid's in any way they can through coaching, pitches for training and much more. See the slideshow for some camogie photos from earlier in the year. In the interests of increasing activity throughout the school we've changed the GAA timetable from 3rd/4th only to include Senior Infants, First and Second classes. It's wonderful so many throughout the school avail of this opportunity now. See slideshow for pictures. We'll keep adding to this.
